I have a 12 yr old daughter who was diagnosed with AML in 03/06...she went through 2 rounds of chemo without going into complete remission...she then underwent a BMT with my 10 yr old son being the donor...he was a perfect match...she relapsed on 12/27/06..with 60% in blood and 90% in bone marrow....she just completed a 5 day round of chemo with a new drug called clolar....we don't know if she is in remission or not....the docs said that since she relapsed after BMT...then her prognosis for long term survival is very poor....they said that they could get her into remission probably, but were not going to be able to keep her from relapsing again....does anybody have any suggestions as to what we need to do as far as further treatment...i.e., where to take her, hospital referrals, etc......
